As our team has grown over the last year or so, we thought it would be a great time to introduce you to the team that we have to help you, re-introducing the more familiar faces and welcoming the new ones!
Today we meet Physiotherapist & Pilates Instructor, Roz.
What are your clinical qualifications?
I studied a BSc Sports Science initially at Loughborough University, graduating in 1993 before going on to study Physiotherapy at Birmingham University, where I qualified in 1997.
What areas have you previously worked in?
My career started in the NHS and I then went to work in Australia as a Physio in private practice for 4 years. On returning to the UK, I spent time working in the private sector alongside working with the Hampshire County Cricket Team. For 8 years I worked with the English Institute of Sport, including being the full time Physiotherapist to the GB Rowing Team, GB Diving Team and GB Synchro Swimming Team. I have also worked as a part time physio for the GB Gymnastics Team.
Do you have any special areas of interest in physiotherapy?
Unsurprisingly, given my sporting experience, I am interested in working with sports injuries, particularly hip and back issues. I am a member of the ACPSEM. I also enjoy rehab after spinal surgery or fractures.
I am also a Level 2 APPI Pilates Instructor and Pilates Reformer Instructor.
What you’re most proud of?
Being part of Team GB at the Olympic Games and seeing the athletes that had worked so hard achieve their goals and dreams knowing that I had played a part to enable that journey to be completed.
What’s the best thing about being part of the goPhysio team?
Being part of a supportive team of people all with different backgrounds, knowledge and skills who are open to sharing those skills and supporting each other.
If you could invite any 3 people in the world round for dinner, who would they be?
- David Attenborough

- Ben Fogle
Where in the world is top of your list to visit?
